1. Zero line in Z direction (baseline) stay 0 and only other lines are being recalculated if entire model moved in vertical direction.
2. Zero X line (Xbaseline) changes from 0 to an amount the model was moved in longitudinal direction.
I was surprised, there is no way to correct intersections in “Intersection” window or delete only one intersection.
Solution which works so far to bring X baseline to 0.
– Select entire model (Select>Select All)
– Move model that farend point has X=0.0001 (Transform>Move>Longitudinal axis>needed amount)
At this point base X axis will start from negative point. Note: If only END point has X=0 you will not be able create X=0 intersection (need to have surface?)
– View>Intersections>Stations>Delete All stations (trash can icon)
– Add station (+1 icon), enter 0 in “New intersection” dialog, click green check mark. It will create 0 Xbaseline.
– Move model +0.0001 in X direction. Transform>Move>Longitudinal axis>0.0001
Now model has 0 Xbaseline and end point has X=0 coordinates.
Recreate as many stations as needed with needed distance between it.
Kind of inconvenient, but works.
